Drug and alcohol addiction is a sad reality for too many people. The consequences of addiction have repercussions that not many people understand at the outset. If you or someone you know wants to get control of their life back it could be as simple as entering treatment to address issues of addiction. There are many contributing factors that will lead an individual to this, but ultimately the person must be completely ready to make a change in their life.
What to Expect Before Entering the Malibu Rehabilitation Center
For anyone who is interested in what a rehabilitation center has to offer are usually able to take a guided tour of the facilities before-hand. If you are taking a tour of a treatment facility there are a few things to consider:
- How long will my treatment last?
- Can I bring a friend or family member?
- What kinds of treatment will I receive?
- If I have a special diet need (vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, kosher, etc.) will the cooks here be able to make the right foods for me?
- What can I bring with me?
Make a list of questions in advance so you don’t forget anything during the tour. You should be able to feel like you feel comfortable, almost as if you were at home in the facility environment. The counselors, doctors and therapists are there to help assist you and are invested in helping you get your life back.
What to Expect During Treatment
